The Axis Patrol is designed to get you first on the water when the wind barely powers your kite. It is Axis’ solution to turn light winds into cool kiteboardign sessions. The board features a similar shape with the Ultra twin tip, the other light wind weapon produced by Axis. The main difference is the construction technology. The Patrol is aimed towards the riders that need an affordable board to have fun in marginal winds.

Lightwind fun is what you will experience once you start riding the Axis Patrol. This board doesn’t need lots of wind or extra power from the kite to get you riding and throwing tricks. The wider profile and slightly parallel outlines make the board quick to plane and very stable.

A flatter rocker ensures consistent speed and acceleration and works together with the flex to ensure a nice pop and rebound. A simple concave bottom design assures extra stability, as well as a drag free, smooth glide. The board has a much larger surface area making it easier to plane and allowing the rider to feel much more power from the kite, even in very light winds.

The Patrol can perform cool tricks, nice carves and it is always forgiving and easy to handle. Even in gusts or in higher winds it is extremely responsive. The guys at Axis have built the Patrol using a Paulownia wood core plus Biaxial fiberglass with Uni carbon reinforcing layups and ABS rails. A Coax PBT foil top and bottom sheet protects this structure. This construction makes the Patrol fairly light and ensures top durability.

More than your usual lightwind board. The Axis Patrol is what you can call a freestyle LW board. Not a pro freestyle board of course, but a board that pops well, lands soft and it's easy to maneuver. I rode the 148 Patrol in 10 knots and I was im...more
